“Fiscal Cliff” in Plain English

After my last email alert, one of my clients sent this to me, and I thought what a great way of explaining the current fiscal mess in the U.S.   

 

 

This helps us to understand what the Fiscal Cliff is all about.

 

Lesson # 1

 

* U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000

* Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000

* New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000

* National debt: $14,271,000,000,000

* Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

 

 

Now, let’s remove 8 zeros and pretend it’s a household budget:

 

* Annual family income: $21,700

* Money the family spent: $38,200

* New debt on the credit card: $16,500

* Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710

* Total budget cuts so far: $385.00

  

 

Got It ? ….. OK now,

 

 

Lesson # 2

 

Here’s another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:

 

Let’s say, you come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood and your home has sewage all the way up to the ceilings.

 

What do you think you should do…

  

Raise the ceilings, or remove the crap?
